Michelle Obama Launches U.S. Campaign to Fight Childhood Obesity
Although Michelle Obama has confessed to loving burgers and fries, she knows children eat entirely too much of the greasy goods and is therefore doing something about it.
On Tuesday Michelle Obama joined her husband President Barack Obama in the Oval Office as he signed an executive order putting in place an “obesity plan of action.”
During a television broadcast the First Lady spoke of the 90-day plan to coordinate efforts of federal agencies to combat America’s obesity epidemic.
“We’re launching a nationwide campaign called ‘Let’s Move’,” she told Good Morning America before talking about her own children’s stay-healthy habits. “My kids have to get up and move. They can’t sit in front of the TV. I have my girls involved in sports because I want them as young women to understand what it feels like to compete and to win and to run and to sweat. This is about all of that as well.”
Michelle will meet up with members of her husband’s cabinet to officially kick off the program at a White House event Tuesday afternoon. (Yahoo)
